Young Audiences Arts Champion Awards – September Winners!

Celebrating Heroes in the Arts

As Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania continues to celebrate our 40th Anniversary we want to recognize and acknowledge the excellence, innovation, and creativity in the communities we serve.  To that end we have created the Young Audiences Arts Champion Awards.  Every month between September and June, YA will present four awards to our “heroes in the arts.”  Each award will honor a school, an organization, an educator and a student that have distinguished themselves as a champion of arts education.

Help us celebrate organizations, educators and students in our region that are taking leadership roles in arts education.
